The finished 'klosjesquilt' en me did a fotoshoot in between rainshowers.
Finishing this gave me a very good feeling. It took a whil befor I quilted it. The centerpart is handquilted and the border machinequilted. So is the binding.
On the grass...
Close-up. All the 'klosjes' are sewed by machine, wich was sometimes a bit tricky because of the corners who are cut on the biais.
The backing is made from a 'toile de joue' fabric wich I love very much. It was too thick to use for handquilting so that is something to remember.
The binding is made of leftover fabric from the klosjes. It was the first time i did this I think and I like it this way. I will certainley do this again.
The quilt is washed with colourcatchers and it all went well. The backingfabric is much softer now.
The fabric was a bit too short so I made it longer by using a small scrapstrip.

Under the trees again...
Het heeft even geduurd voordat ik weer een stukje schreef maar ik ben blij dat ik het nu weer opgepakt heb!
Now time to fold it up and back inside again. Another job done!
It took me some time to start writing again but I'm glad to be back!
